Have you ever eaten Onigiri?
What Onigiri do you like?

Those are some nice looking jelly donuts.

I have never tried them. I only know what they are, after it turned out that the doughnuts on Pokémon were not really doughnuts. Then, I found out that they were really onigiri. How would you describe this food, what is the taste?
>>
>>10591751
It's just a rice ball. There's a hint of sour and bitter from the vinegar in the rice, but the taste mostly comes down to what, if anything, is inside of it.
>>
>>10591765
It is of rice, vinegar, and seaweed, then?
>>
I buy them plastic-wrapped from a Japanese store. Salmon, tempura prawn, and pickled plum are my favourites.
>>
The ones I've tried are the supermarket ones which had so little filling inside and I've always felt ripped off.
>>
>>10591765
Hey, Japanese don't use vinegar for onigiri.
It would be sushi.

Tuna Mayo is the unbeaten classic
>>
While travelling in thailand, I made friends with a 19yo south african who was outside his country the first time in his life. He grew up in a small german town in the middle of the savannah so obviously, a lot of the food in thailand was new to him. We were pretty goddamn stoned one night and I convinced him to try an onigiri from a convenience store. I swear I saw his face change from curiosity to pure delight in slow motion as he took his first bite. It was the purest display of joy I've ever seen in anyone above the age of 7.

>>10591738
Iberico pork from 7-11. It's quite large but still cheap, I always buy it before going to the station.
Also the seared salmon is good too.
>>
I went through High School years in Thailand, and grabbed onigiri at a family mart almost evey morning when I was in a rush. They're not all that special really, its just sushi rice stuffed with meat or some other shit, covered in sea weed. Cheap though, it's similar to a new yorker grabbing a stuffed pretzel or some bullshit stuffed pastry before work. It's not meant to be a culinary delight, but more as a gibbie my shit i gots to go kind of thing.

Bought them all the time when I was in Japan at the convenience stores. Cheap & quick breakfast, no more than $1.50 USD. Not a healthy lifestyle, but I lived.

is it possible to do onigiri with basmati rice? It's the only rice I've at hand right now.
>>
>>10593772
i dont think basmati is glutenous enough to stick together like that but you can try it
>>
>>10593772
Yes, just add cornstarch or glue.
>>
I make pb&j onigiri
>>
>>10591768
rice and seaweed. there are different fillings, and to me personally, they taste terrible.
>>
>>10591833
Do you know how many times japs asked me whether it was true Americans ate bread every day because in their mind eating rice every day needs a counterpart? You are the white version of those same jap morons motherfucker
>>
>>10591808
so it's basically just bland rice?
and people say white people don't season their food
>>
>>10595702
Onigiri usually has a filling. There is a piece of something inserted into the center of the rice ball.
>>
>>10591738
I used to get chili tuna and bbq chicken from the Family Mart in Fukuoka when I would travel there from Pusan. Kyushu chicks know how to party
>>
>>10591819
this picture makes me want to cut bread from my diet completely
>>
When I make onigiri. I mix furikake into the rice and fill them with shiozake. Then a strip of nori on the outside to hold it by.
>>
Can these be made with long grain rice?
>>
>>10591819
>katsu
ebin
i'd like some of that
>>
>>10595828
Long grain rice tends not to be very sticky so it probably won't hold together as well.
>>
>>10591738
Pickled plum, salmon, lately I like the one with bonito flake mixed into the rice.

>>10591751
I get a craving for good rice sometimes and it fills that. If you don’t love rice then you won’t like it.
>>
>>10595828
No, but you can use medium grain like kokuho rose
>>
>>10591819
So help me out nips.
1. Potato salad
2. Salmon flake?
3. Takuan.
4. Chicken korokke. Just a patty?
5. Egg omuraisu (omelette rice) with a meat whose characters Im not looking up
6. Tuna mayo
7. Yakiniku beef
8. Kinpira. So veggies and is that tofu?
9. Ham and egg
>>
>>10595903
Most of that seems to be right

4 is just croquette. Chunk of fried potato

This guy >>10591808 is correct. Everyday rice is made with water only. You can add something on top later though. Children love egg toppings. Some people put nori or shina on top. Maybe for kombinis they add something to the rice.

Bread is becoming quite popular as a breakfast meal. On a flight to Japan, I met a Japanese cook who had gone to France to study cooking and was returning to work at a high class bakery in Tokyo. He told me the older generation normally will prefer to stick to natto for breakfast, but the youngsters love the sandwiches and toast.

1. Potato salad
2. Salmon flakes
3. Takuan pickles
4. Croquette
5. Thin fried egg (instead of seaweed) omelette rice
6, tuna mayo
7. Grilled meat
8. Simmered veggie mix
9. Ham and egg

With 5 it just shows that the seaweed is replaced by a thinly fried egg. That’s the part with the arrow.

Also my new favorite is the natto roll. Didn’t enjoy natto until I had it.

Its just a big ass piece of rice with little bits of shit in it. I have had it multiple times. Its a fucking joke.

Stop eating shit anon it isn't funny. You're scaring everybody.

Tuna mayo always my favorite in combini food, especially wrapped sushi rolls. I don’t miss Japan’s weather, prehistoric AC, tiny ass houses and tiny ass objects within them, peer pressure, and heavy drinking culture, but I do miss the food.

That feel when standing in front of all the delicious Onigiris late at night in a 7/11 in Kyoto.

And yeah, mayo tuna is the best.

>>
>>10591738
Isn't it basically just rice? Maybe with some form of pickle inside.

I've scraped leftover rice from the pot, balled it up, and ate it with either soy sauce or hot sauce. Same shit. It's just rice.

Yes I have.
Yaki onigiri, which is just a grilled or toasted riceball is a good snack.

Most of the time, you'll eat them filled with something, very rarely will you be seeved or given ones that are plain rice and nori.

The best mainland japan variety is probably pollock roe, which is basically spicy fish eggs.

Okinawa (and hawaii I guess) has pork/Spam and egg onigiri, usually with tuna or shrimp mayo, that one is probably my favorite. You can get them all over mainland, however. Pic related. Some food stands are popping up that make enormous ones with thick slices of fried spam and scrambled eggs with other shit added, like other vegetables or real bacon.

And then another one I always get is Kimchi onigiri, especially if I have no time and need to get something to eat during a drive.

Onigiri is usually eaten warm, so convenience store clerks will ask if you want yours microwaved for 20-30 seconds while they ring you up.

I miss fresh, cheap Japanese food.

I think I'm going to go to the Asian mart and make some unagi or something.

bacon and egg is far worse than you would expect.

for me it's salmon.
>>
>>10591819
alright i'd try this anytime.
>>
>>10591738
I make them quite often. Smoked salmon is my favorite.
>>
Yeah, I got some at a convenience store in Japan. I tried one with pork filling, and another with salmon. They were good.
